Even being Chinese and speaking the lingo, trying to find a decent restaurant in Soho is confusing. Tried the little Far East restaurant as we fancied traditional congee with fried dough stick. This was tasty (with the century old egg) but other dishes like the...More

So apparently nobody deserves a nice service at this place. Long story short about all the customers service experience: ordered some dumplings, came with a hair on it, asked for a new portion - send the same but just deep fried. Didn’t even bother to...More

I was craving for Chinese breakfast one day, and I ended up here. I ordered a congee, fried dough and soya milk. It was really good and it met my expectation. The bill was £14, not that cheap (of course) if you compare it to...More

Noodle lovers, rejoice. I sat and ordered the char siu noodle soup and it was fantastic. A place for satisfying quick bites. Will be back soon.

This was the only place we found open in Chinatown at 10am, so we decided to give it a try. Their preserved egg with pork congee was delicious! We also got the shui gao (水饺) noodle soup and the beef noodle ho fun. The Ho...More

This used to be our favourite restaurant in Chinatown (due to the food and not the service). This time however the service was appalling - the waitress was absolutely miserable and we were told only after ordering that it was a minimum order of £10...More

Popped into this small restaurant for a bit to eat before a West End musical nearby. Waitress sat us down quite quick, absolutely appalled at the state of the grubby state of the menu which has had better days, the menu was dirty and torn...More

I’d been going there for their takeaway baked goods for many years until today. For the first time my son and I sat down to have some noodles and drinks. The food was ok and the prices on the menu seemed pretty reasonable for the...More

greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the
